India also have a deadly spin duo namely Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal they have been very consistent for India and even though they had got a beating from the English openers , they can still be A very dangerous combo during the World Cup finals if India do beat New Zealand in the semifinal. India also have very good all-rounders such as the big hitting Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav who is handy in situations where Indian bowlers are getting hit. India is a very strong side and can win their third world cup. After beating Australia with such a huge margin India might repeat what they did in 1983 and 2011.

Hosts and tournaments favorites England just manage to qualify for the semis by defeating India and by also winning the last game in the group stages. England have very good batsman such as Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy. Their opening partnership of Bairstow and Roy completely destroyed the Indian spinners in the match against India. they also have very good all-rounders such as Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and very good bowlers like newcomer Jofra Archer and the experience Adil Rashid.

Bangladesh led by Mashrafe Mortaza are under dogs no more as they have created many

Bangladesh led by Mashrafe Mortaza are under dogs no more as they have created many upsets in the past few years gone by wins against England in the 2015 world cup. Bangladesh have the best all-rounder in the world Shakib Al Hasan who scored more than 600 runs and has picked up more than 10 wickets in this world cup, so he has a lot of chance of being the man of the series. Bangladesh has a lot of quality bowlers especially Rubel Hossain and Mostafizur Rahman and have very good batsmen like Mushfiqur Rahim , Tamil Iqbal ,Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al Hasan himself. They have not qualified for the semi-finals, but they have entertained all viewers and are now a force to reckon with.

Pakistan who are India's arch Rivals started the world cup campaign buy a huge loss

Pakistan who are India's arch Rivals started the world cup campaign buy a huge loss to West Indies. But they bounced back with victories over New Zealand and England. But they finished fifth in the points Tally and does where out of the world cup. Pakistan had an embarrassing loss to the Indian team and are yet to win a world cup match against India. Pakistan has very good batsman like ok Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam and Imam Ul Haq. They also have experience players like Mohammad Hafeez coma Shoaib Malik ok and the captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. Pakistan team is very unpredictable they can win on their day but other days they perform very badly.

The South African cricket team has very good players like Hashim Amla, Faf Du Plesis,

The South African cricket team has very good players like Hashim Amla, Faf Du Plesis, Kagiso Rabada, Quinton de Kock and Chris Morris. their greatest all-time player A B de Villiers retired from cricket just before the world cup this dealt a severe blow to their prospects in this world cup South Africa also missed the services of Dale Steyn duty injury and Morne Morkel who retired. South Africa had a disastrous World Cup losing almost all their initial matches but ended the campaign with a good victory over Australia. South Africa has been labelled as chokers as they always fail in important tournaments, yet they are one of the best teams in the world.

West Indies is a team of many countries from the Caribbean they play very passionate

West Indies is a team of many countries from the Caribbean they play very passionate cricket. West Indies team has big names in cricket history. they have previously won the World Cup 2 times. The current lot of players include Chris Gayle, Andre Russell Shai hope and Shimron Hetmyer are very capable and fantastic players in in many cricket leagues Around The World yet when they play as a team together they mostly underperform. this world cup they started very well with a big win against Pakistan but could not hold on to the momentum and went on a losing spree. West Indies finished at the end of the table as second last. we hope to see the West Indies team revive to the earlier glory.

Afghanistan is a young team with a lot of potential. the key players are Rashid

Afghanistan is a young team with a lot of potential. the key players are Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi. They also have very talented 18- year-old Mujibur Rahman and Ekram Ali Khil. Afghanistan promised a lot of good performances but could not cope up to the World Cup pressure at the end of each match they ended losing all their matches. but they had gone down fighting against many teams including India and Pakistan. their play was noteworthy and heartening to see specially when the country is seeing a warlike situation. For the sake of cricket, we wish Afghanistan also comes up and starts meaning against the top teams of the world.

Sri Lanka has a very good cricket team but of late they have not been

Sri Lanka has a very good cricket team but of late they have not been performing to their potential since the departure of the pillars of Srilankan cricket Arvind D'silva, Kumar Sangakkara, Muttiah Muralitharan and Chaminda Vaas, Sri Lanka has not been able to achieve the same success it got when these great players were there. Sri Lanka had a decent World Cup but two of their matches were washed out. does they could not manage to qualify for the semifinals. their captain Karunaratne and experienced Angela Mathew and Lasith Malinga tried to take the team farther but the rest of the team did not perform so well. ok Youngsters Avishka Fernando and Dhananjaya De Silva where good finds for the team. hope the island country performs to its potential next time.
